Hi, I am Jennifer Strang. I am a history major, like most of you, and very excited about this class. I love cemeteries and the stories they hold. Also, my family has been in the Richmond area for around 200+ years. I am looking forward to our field trips and the discussions that will follow.
My name is Alison and I am studying History and Italian at VCU.
Hey guys, my name is Alex I’m a History major with minors in Spanish and Religious Studies at VCU. Im hoping to eventually make it to law school after I graduate. I’m excited to take this class and learn more about Richmond.
Hello. My name is Greg Moore. I am a senior as a History Major. I am looking forward to this class and learning more about Richmond.
Hi. My name is Erik Phillips. I am majoring in history as well as political science, and I graduate from VCU this spring. Not sure what will happen after that. However, I love Richmond and it’s awesome that my capstone seminar class is about this city’s own physical history.
Hello Everyone. I am Javonti Braxton; I am a senior majoring in African American Studies and History.
Hello HIST 490! My name is Rebecca, but I prefer Becca, and like many/all of you I’m a history major. (With a double major in English and a minor in bio.) I’m from Richmond, and have lived in Jackson Ward for a large portion of my life. I’m really excited for this class because of how much I love my city. I hope this semester will be as great as I think it could be.
I am a Senior at VCU studying (after much internal conflict) History. I also intern with a local farm and spend roughly 40 hours a week making coffee for mostly people other than myself. I’ll look more than slightly tired on most Wednesdays. After I graduate this December I’ll be setting off the following Spring on a 5-6 month journey up the Appalachian Trail. This course is important to me both as an aspiring historian and as Richmond resident and I look forward to what we will see and learn. I am particularly looking forward to re-examining previously visited sites from a different perspective. See everyone soon!
As with everyone else I am a senior at VCU studying history. After I earn my bachelors I hope to continue my education and got for my masters in public history or museum studies. I am super excited for this class and this semester!
Like most of you I am also a senior History major here at VCU. Currently I work at Amuse in the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts as a chef and after I graduate I plan on furthering my passion for southern food by using its history to further my understanding of how it developed. I’m excited to be taking this class with you all and Im looking forward to reading your posts.
Hope you enjoyed the snow, Stoked to see you Wednesday.
